I know this isn't really a paganism related image but it's so cool I decided to feature it anyway. This is a tattoo of the famous painting "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt much loved for its ecstatic and vivid expression of love between the two figures awash in a sea of gold leaf and flowers.

ths could be a pagan tatoo. The man uses ivy in his hair, like Dionysus... always make me think in DIonysus and Ariadne

Never thought of it that way but you're right.
